CT0913 September 2013 CENTRAL THEME: Branching Out
Ideas for interpretation:--Fall colors --trees, wood, woodgrain, leaves, branches
--things you might find on the branch of a tree (wildlife, a nest, birdhouse, etc)
There is so much that needs to be said about Susie because she is so divinely sweet she leaves such kind and thoughtful comments for everyone. Susie is also a very gifted creator of gorgeous paper crafts. CAS, 3D and all sorts of cards! I love her work.
I was inspired by Susie’s Fall Colors card
and wanted to create what I see happening in my own yard. There is a white dustiness on the leaves and the colors are changing fast and furious here in New England.
I stamped the three leaves and heat embossed in pearlescent ivory embossing powder. I sponged with DI wild honey, spiced marmalade, peeled paint, fired brick and walnut stain. The branch is from TH’s tattered holly and berries die.
Thank you Susie for all your inspiring work and thank you all for viewing!

I Love those leaves! What a different approach to doing leaves and how fabulous they look! I also love the sentiment label, woodgrain background and that button with twine- perfect for fall!
